The focus of the club is to develop elite athletes who will compete at a County, Regional, National and International Level. 


The club welcomes a wide range of swimmers from Learn to Swim, Age Group and Masters.  We however do things differently at the club as we know that the long term development of swimmers is the most important thing to consider when putting swimmers in squads.


All age group (9-21+ years) swimmers will undertake a trial and if accepted they will be placed into the correct squad based on their age on or before 31st August (school year). Younger swimmers have the choice between which of the two squads they want to go into, the difference being the level of commitment they want to make.

For swimmers who want to achieve an high level then the Elite Squads are recommended as these will provide the right balance of land training and swimming to achieve the best results. Swimmers in these squads need to be committed to listening, work hard and be self motivated.

The club also has a National Performance Programme which is for those swimmers which have been selected by the head coach and want to commit to the higher level of training. 


This said, some swimmers are not able to commit to this much training so the club provides them with the opportunity to train at a high level without pressure to attend a minimum number of sessions. These swimmers can, at any time, (providing there is space) ask to join the National Performance Programme, the head coach will then devise a personal development plan so they can look to achieve the level required to go onto the programme.
